Why coronavirus tests are far from perfect

The accuracy of coronavirus tests has been again thrust into the spotlight, after a man who authorities said died from COVID-19, actually didn’t.

When 30-year-old Nathan Turner died last week, Queensland Health said he had tested positive to COVID-19.

But further testing showed that he was negative.

So how did the test get it wrong, and how common could it be?

On today’s show:

* How do you even get a false positive?

* How is the coronavirus death rate calculated?

* If Australia is locked down, where would a second wave come from?

* Why are there still cases in hotel quarantine?
